Guardian Analytics® and CipherTrace to Host Detecting and Reporting Crypto Transactions Executive Webinar on February 11

Mountain View, CA, January 30th, 2020Guardian Analytics, the market leader in real-time behavioral analytics and machine learning solutions for banking payment fraud detection, anti-money laundering, and enterprise B2B portal fraud, today announced an upcoming executive webinar with CipherTrace, the leader in cryptocurrency intelligence, on the challenge of detecting and reporting crypto transactions.

Experts from Guardian Analytics and CipherTrace will explore how legacy AML tools are not equipped to identify crypto entities and their related bank account data. To solve this system challenge, financial institutions will need to combine a modern AML case management system and crypto risk intelligence to correctly identify the movement of fiat money into and from crypto entities such as exchanges, gambling sites, and dark markets. Learn how using leading-edge technologies from Guardian Analytics and CipherTrace can provide actionable intelligence, with the ability to alert, manage and automatically create cases on risky crypto transactions with accurate crypto entity detection and bank account matching. Guardian Analytics can generate pre-filled SAR forms, easily reporting these transactions to FinCEN that will help institutions ensure compliance and fight crypto fraud.

“Crypto-based transactions can be traced via the blockchain; however, a dirty cryptocurrency scheme will use anonymize service to hide the funds source making the links between bitcoin transactions untraceable,” said Eric Tran-Le, VP of Product Management and Co-CEO, Guardian Analytics. “It is essential to detect crypto-related transactions before the integration point so that KYC can be triggered. With Guardian Analytics’ AML Evidence Lake™ integration with CipherTrace, crypto-related transactions can be quickly detected before they enter the blockchain and become anonymized.”

“We are excited to collaborate with Guardian Analytics to help protect banks from risky exposure to illicit crypto activities and sanctions risks,” said Stephen Ryan, COO and Co-founder, CipherTrace. “This partnership will enable CipherTrace Cryptocurrency Risk Intelligence to accurately identify thus reducing the risky crypto exposure faced by many financial institutions today.”
